A Journal of the Plague Year
The haunting cry of "Bring out your dead!" by a bell-ringing collector of 17th-century plague victims has filled readers across the centuries with cold terror. The chilling cry survives in historical consciousness largely as a result of this classic 1722 account of the epidemic of bubonic plague — known as the Black Death — that ravaged England in 1664–1665.

Review: A Journal of the Plague YearUser Review - Aric Cushing - Goodreads
A great account of the plague and the ravages on the countryside during the disease's reign. Worth the read, but towards the middle one might find that everything that needed to be said, was done so previously. A must for die hard history fans. Read full review
